for continuance are being withdrawn. >> opening it up for public comment, items proposed for continuance. one speaker, mark -- devon-- he will tell them exactly how to pronounce it. >> devonchenzi (sounds like) thank you for taking the time to hear me today, i want to follow up for this continuance. as you may recall september 17, following our dr request i sent an e-mail to the project sponsor and copied all of you. in my e-mail i explained we were in general agreement with the items that mr. cabrero had itemized. his interpretation of what you the commissioners requested from the project sponsors, we agreed that no -- sun deck should be built.
most importantly in the e-mail, i was concerned expressed my concerned that having a meeting with the project sponsor on the 22nd, would not give them enough time to turnaround a new plan by the 20 fourth party requirements. i have no response. when we met with the project sponsor on the 22, they had not made any changes, most of you said you wanted to see, and they had no plans to submit a change on the 24th. they both claim that the planning department had approved their plan and that was good enough for them. i am asking you to strongly recommend to the planning
department that they articulate exactly what you have asked of the plan sponsor, what they need to resubmit, and when so that when we meet again on november 8, the plan sponsor is better prepared, thank you. >> thank you. any other public comment on the items proposed for continuance? commissioners? >> move to continue item 1 to the date specified on the calendar. >> second. >> commissioners, you have a motion for continuance to november 8, 20-30 toledo way, on that motion. (voting) >> the items continued to nov. 8 as proposed on the calendar. commissioners,
you're now on commissioners questions in matters. >> first i congratulate the oakland athletics and san francisco giants for winning their respective divisions and may be too early to start talking about bay bridge or bart series, it would be a thrill. i am thrilled that the oakland a's, in record-breaking style come from 13 games back to win the division; i hope it will keep their team in open forever. the oakland a's have won four world series san francisco giants to date have only won one. they may need to have any facility perhaps baseball only,
most teams have that in the country. perhaps that is something that can be worked out between the oakland a's and the city of oakland. a personal note, despite the fact that i have rather bright pink clothing, i am happy to announce that my son and daughter-in-law are expecting a boy in march; my granddaughter will have a little brother. finally more importantly, i did meet with project sponsor a couple of weeks ago in regards to 2830 toledo, i did have a chance to look at the plans and i'm happy to work with the dr requester and project sponsor to forge a compromise that will make it something that the commission can evaluate and find compromise. this will come back in november. i think there's a lot of potential there.
